The rough-hewn elegance and spiritual meaning of an inukshuk belies its practicality as a navigational and communication tool for Arctic travellers. To the Inuit, it is regarded as a guide or warning to those who follow in their footsteps across the often-harsh northern landscape; to all Canadians coast to coast to coast, it is a foremost symbol of our common spirit of community and friendship, even in times of adversity. Today, those who wish to leave a positive mark upon the landscape often turn to the inukshuk, whose human-like shape with open arms makes it a beautiful, welcoming representation of Canada's great northern spirit — an inspiring token with an underlying message that says "I was here" and "Welcome to my land."

Designed by Tony Bianco, your coin captures both the practical and spiritual essence of a symbol of "the True North, strong and free." Reverse gold plating fills the field and gives the coin its rich, golden hue, while precision engraving re-creates the rocky northern landscape. At the centre, an Inuit stone marker rises up from a mound; the silver surface of the coin adds extra shine to this human-like landmark, which carries special significance as a communication tool and a hunting and navigational aid for the Inuit. Built from stacked stones of different sizes, this inukshuk stands like the guardian of its northern lands, its open arms pointing the way to the north as the stylized aurora borealis dances overhead. The reverse includes the engraved word "CANADA", the year "2018" and the face value "20 DOLLARS". The gold-plated obverse features the silver effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.


Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
